TOMBS IN OLD TBINITY. 




Early Ghurcher Burials 

The tombstones in the churchyard of Old Trinity at Wall Street and Broad- 
way, New York City, are mostly obliterated. This illustration was made over fifty 
years ago, thus preserving the inscription long since destroyed by time and weather. 
Members of the Churcher or Churchier families will find something of interest here,

Sevier 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

General John Sevier was married first 
in 1761-2 to Sarah Hawkins, the daugh- 
ter of Governor Hawkins. By her he 
had ten children. One was Valentine, 
born 1775 and married 1795. To whom? 
One tradition is that she was Miss Ar- 
nott, but want full proofs on this, with 
any dates procurable on them and their 
son John Sevier, born 1796; died June, 

1863. He married first ? 

Second April 12, 1840 Mary Meyers, 
died March 10, # 1876. 

General Sevier was the hero of thirty 
battles during the Revolutionary War, 
and his brother, Captain Valentine 
Sevier served under him at battle of 
King's Mountain. By his second wife. 
Catherine Sherrill he had eight children. 
I have list of several of these, but not the 
date of birth of any. Can give names of 
some whom they marred, but not all, so 
shall be glad to have full data on forego- 
ing. He was born September 23, 1745; 
died September 24, 1815. A. R. H.

Paul- Richardson- Richmond 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

The author of a recent English publica- 
tion upon American families says that 
William Paul of Taunton, who died 1704 
and was born 1624 in Scotland, married 
Mary Richardson, daughter of John. 
This is incorrect, since the will of Col. 
John Richmond of Taunton reveals the 
fact that Mrs. Paul was his daughter. 
Was this William Paul a son of another 
William Paul of Taunton, 1638, who re- 
turned to York county, England? Did 
he marry a Mary Richardson, daughter 
of John Richardson of Scotland?

Reynolds- Dickinson 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

At North Kingstown, R. I., in Febru- 
ary, 1758, there were married Elisha 

Reynolds, son of John and Hannah ? 

Reynolds and Mary Dickinson, daughter 
of John and Mary Dickinson. They had 
son Elisha, born August, 1763, who 
served in the Revolutionary War, but 



name of his first wife has never been 
learned. A descendant said she had 
heard it was "Miss Gates", but the proofs 
on this have never been found. Elisha 
was living at Alburgh, Vermont, in 1790, 
and was married before then. His son 
Thomas, born about 1795 married Elsie 
Bell, the daughter of William and Lizzie 
(Deuell) Bell. They had a large family, 
and one son named Michael would indi- 
cate that Lizzie was daughter of Michael 
Duell, who lived at Alburgh in 1790. An- 
other son was called Sewell or Soule 
Bell, and we believe that there is rela- 
tionship to the Mayflower Soule's, for we 
have heard that an old Bible in Vermont 
has the line back to the Mayflower. Any 
aid on above will be appreciated.

Willard Family 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

The History of Harvard, Mass., page 
574, is in error as to the family of 
Thomas Willard, showing children by his 
second wife by whom he had none. Her 
name was given as Sarah Fletcher. It 
should read: Sarah (Brewer) Fletcher, 
widow, and they were married Febru.ary 
25, 1786. Her first husband, Timothy 
Fletcher, died in May, 1779, and the first 
wife of Thomas Willard, Sarah Gibson, 
died May 22, 1779. Harvard records 
and Bailey's Early "Massachusetts Mar- 
riages" both show that Thomas Willard, 
Jr., and Sarah Farwell were married 
May 3, 1768. They were undoubtedly 
the parents of the five children credited 
to his father, as having been born be- 
tween 1768 and 1778. See U. S. Census 
1790, page 222. J. A. P.

PAST AND PRESENT 

GENEALOGY begets ancestral gos- 
sip, and I purpose in this column to chat- 
ter aimlessly but nevertheless agreeably 
and instructively, upon things, persons, 
places and what-not genealogically. It 
is a short journey, after all is said and 
done, from Plymouth Rock to Somerset 
Street, and from the martyrs of yester- 
day to the ancestral chart makers of 
today. 



moment ago I was called upon to record 
the marriage of Rhoda Bagger, and what 

is worse she was united to a Cook. 

* * * 

"Don't shoot this old gray head," she 
said. Who said ? Why Barbara Frietchie. 
In Frederick County, Maryland, on Feb- 
ruary 2, 1793, William Carey was wed- 
locked to the said Barbara Frietchie. 
Whether she was the only, original Bar- 
bara it matters little. 

* * * 

After I had driven fourteen miles over 
the mountain trails, last summer, to a 
Virginia County seat, I met the white- 
haired county clerk. "Good Lord, man," 
he said, "I've been yere in this office 
forty-two years, and yer the second pur- 
sohn that's been yere in all that time to 
look at them records." 

* * * 

What things there are, my dears, in 
the wills men make. One Thomas Brig- 
ham, of England, 1542, bequeathed to his 
son Ralph, "my chamlett gowne, my 
long night gowne, both my chamlett 
jackets and a paire of virginals." 

* * * 

Mistress Katherine Roundell in her 
will dated 1522, wrote in a humorous 
vein. "I give, to my son Thomas, half a 
mare, half a saddle and half a cart 
wheel." Which would be slow going for 
Thomas. 



Only a few hours ago I found the mar- 
riage record of America's first "grafter" 
and money grubber, the renowned Cap- 
tain William Kidd, he of buried gold 
renown. Captain Kidd was married in 
New York City, 16 May, 1691, to Sarah 
Oort. That is the way she spelled her 

name. 

* * * 

In our nomenclature we frequently find 
a Beet, an Onion, a Root or a Corn. 
Once in a life time we strike at the head 
of a Cabbage. In my own line there comes 
to the surface a Turnipseed. But a 



Who is the most famous Englishman 

of history? Not the Kings, nor the Sir 

Sydneys, nor the Chaucers, but good old 

yellow-journal, news-maker Guy Fawkes. 

His name comes readily and he lives on 

after all others are forgotten. 
* * * 

In his will dated December 6, 1773, 
Rev. Noah Hobart of Fairfield, Conn., 
made this provision: "Second, I give to 
my loving wife all she brought with her, 
also ye use of my house as long as she 
has a mind to stay there."

Ayres-Osborn 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Recently I purchased a copy of the 
old Ayres' work, on the descendants of 
Captain John Ayres of Brookfield, Mass. 
In it was some of the data sought, but 
much lacking. He had a son Samuel, 
who married Abigail Fellows, and they 
had a son Samuel, who married Martha 
Bell January 21, 1742, and had ten chil- 
dren — as we found this the popular num- 
ber for his father and his descendants, 
for Asa Ayres, his son, born June 5, 1761, 
married Mary Wait and had ten children 
also. One son bore the odd name 
Buenos Ayres — the youngest, who was 
but ten when his father moved to Ohio 
and bought land in Geauga co. ; Buenos 
married September 1, 1833, Sarah Os- 
born, daughter of Ransom and Sarah 
(Hurd) Osborn, who was born at Ox- 
ford, New Haven co., Conn., September 
2, 1816. She was of English descent, 
her ancestors having resided in New Eng- 
land many generations — so says an old 
letter. Can any one give the Osborn and 
Hurd lines down to Sarah? Or the Bell 
and Wait lines ? Did Asa Ayres serve in 
the Revolutionary War from Massachu- 
settes ? He seems to have lived at Ches- 
ter, Hamden county, Mass., until after 
1810. His father lived at Granby, was 
drowned November 15, 1768, aged 52. 
His wife died October 25, 1765, aged 41. 
Do not know when Asa and his wife died 
nor age at death. Shall be glad to give 
more data to ones interested in these 
lines. A. R. H.

Payne-Leach- Brewster 

[Contributed to Genealogy] 

As yet, proofs are lacking on the par- 
ents- of Stephen Payne, who had son 
Ebenezer Leach Payne, who served in 
the Revolutionary War, taking his 
father's place when only sixteen. Re- 
cently from old records we procured de- 
scription of this Ebenezer L. Payne, 
dated Northampton, September 14, 1780, 
of men detached from Col. Israel 
Chapin's 2nd Hampshire Co. for the term 
of three months. "Age 17 years : stature 
5 feet and 3 inches. Complexion light", 
etc. His father, Stephen Payne mustered 
between January 20, 1777 and June 1, 
1778 by Trumen Wheler, Master Muster 
for Berkshire co., Capt. Watkins' Com- 
pany: term three years or during the 
war. Reported received state bounty. 
Where can one get data on those who re- 
ceived state bounty? 

Another Stephen Payne lived at Le- 
banon, Conn., at or near same time; thi§ 
Stephen was married there, September 
23, 1756, to Rebecca Bushnell, and one 
of these served in the French and Indian 
wars with Capt. Ebenezer Leach, which 
might account for the name of his son. 
Or it may prove that this Stephen was 
son of Stephen and Sarah Leach, who 
were married at Pomfret, Conn., 1727, 
and had there two children, Judith and 
Noah. I found lately in the Comstock 
Genealogy, page 275 : "Abel ( 5 ) Com- 
stock (Daniel 4) born 1721, died 1314, 
Cooperstown, N. Y. He married Sep- 
tember 17, 1747, Judith Pain, at Kent, 
Conn. She was born 1728, and died De- 
cember 19, 1803, at Litchfield, Conn. In 
August, 1776, Abel Comstock was a pri- 
vate in Captain Carter's Co." So from 
this we find that Stephen, whose wife 
was Sarah Leach moved to Kent, some- 
time in 1730-40, as no record is found at 
Pomfret after about 1730. 

One Stephen Paine married Jemima 
Morgan, and on the Norwich records I 



found only this : "Roger, ye son of 
Stephen Paine and his wife Jemima was 
born the 25th day of July, 1760". They 
were married in 1754. It is probable that 
the Stephen Paine who married Rebecca 
Bushnell is the one born to Benjamin and 
Mary Brewster Paine, June 26, 1735, for 
he would be just past 21, while the one 
who married in 1754 would be only 19, 
Would be very grateful for any aid on 
this problem, so that descendants could 
join Mayflower Descendants. Kingsley's 
Records at Lebanon — he was for many 
years the Town Clerk — says this Stephen 
born to Benj. is the one who married Re- 
becca Bushnell. Would like to know 
when Stephen died at Partridgefield, 
Mass., and his age at death ; this would 
prove whose son he was, most likely. 
Shall appreciate any clues. A. R. H.

PAST AND PRESENT 

Thomas Pigge of Dedham, Mass., 
died in 1660. In his will dated October 
30, the name is written Pig, Pigg, Pigge 
and Pidge. "A rose by any other name," 

etcetera. 

* * * 

The last survivor of the Battle of 
Concord, April 19, 1775, was Amos 
Lincoln Baker, who died July 16, 1850, in 
Boston. At a Concord celebration the 
same year, he signed a statement that 
he participated in the battle seventy-five 

years before. 

* * * 

The first white child born, in America 
was Virginia Dare, daughter of Annanias 
and Eleanor Dare. She was born August 
18, 1597, in Roanoke, North Carolina. 
Her parents were of the expedition sent 
out by Sir Walter Raleigh in that year. 

* * * 

Love and wedlock knoweth neither age, 
condition, color, weather or previous con- 
dition of servitude. Hence, I am never 



surprised at what one may discover in 
the course of one's researches. In Balti- 
more, Maryland, on May 8, 1801, Mr. 
M. H. Duval of Prince George County, 
aged 17, was married to Mrs. Allen, 
aged 50, widow of the late Zachariah 
Allen of that place. The marriage notice 
concludes with these lines : 

"A wise and happy change of life, 

To get at once a mother and a wife." 

* * * 

And this from the mother of states: 
"Married, in New Kent County, Virginia, 
February 27, 1802, Mr. Michael Sher- 
man, aged 97, to the amiable and accom- 
plished Miss Eliza Poindexter, aged 14." 
Old enough to be her great, great grand- 
father. Where are May and December 
now? 

Yet age is really of no account in the 
love-game. On January 23, 1764, Miss 
Mary Eldrington, "an old virgin," died 
in Elizabethtown, New Jersey, in the 
109th year of her age. She was of an 
ancient family in Northumberland, Eng- 
land. The account further states : "Not- 
withstanding her great age, she was very 
desirous of getting a husband before she 
died, and when she had reached her 107th 
year, nothing could offend her so highly 
as to tell her she was too old to be mar- 
ried." 

One of the early Otis emigrants was 
Robert, who came from Ireland in 1720, 
and settled at the mouth of the Connecti- 
cut river. The first arrival, John of 
Massachusetts, spelled his name Ottis, 
and on the original records of Hingham, 
the name is found as Otis, Otys, Ottis, 

Otes, Oates, Oattis and Oatis.

John Foster was a mathematician and 
printer in Dorchester, Mass. He died 
September 9, 1681, aged 33. On his 
tombstone is the inscription 

"Skill was his Cash."

Wills 

[Contributed to Genealogy] 

(Martin Smith, Son of Betsy Burton 
and Obadiah Smith— Will dated 1818.) 

I, Martin Smith, being of infirm body, 
sound mind and memory, do make and 
order this as my last will and testament, 
revoking all others heretofore made by 
me. First, my will and desire is that all 
my just debts be paid in order to enable 
my executors hereinafter named to ac- 
complish so desirable an end do ento 
upon and sell all my estate, both real and 
personal, or of whatever kind may con- 
sist (not here mention) dowered at such 
times and upon such terms that they may 
think most advantageous to my estate. 

Second, My will and desire is that my 
executors do convey to Jacob Smith, by 
deed the land whereon he lives to that 
part running from a corner pine on 
Robert Gordon's line along a line of 
marked trees to a corner of poplar and 
timber or old mill pond, branch thence to 
the poplar to William Young line, so as 
to include the little meadow. 

Third, My will and desire is that my 
executors do convey by deed to (my 
brother-in-laws) John Hawkins, Lyddall 
Bacon Bowles and my brother Jacob 
Smith, one-fourth part to each of them, 
two acres of land in the City of Rich- 
mond, Virginia, which was purchased 
of Jesse Smith by myself, John Hawkins, 
Lyddall Bacon Bowles and Jacob Smith, 
the said deed having been made to me by 
the said Jesse Smith, so soon as each of 
them shall complete the third and last 
payment for the same. 

Fourth, I give and bequeath to my 
sister, Nancy Smith, fifteen hundred dol- 
lars, to be paid to her by my executors as 
soon as the sale can be made of my estate 
by them to her and her heirs forever. 

Fifth, I lend to my mother, Elizabeth 
Burton Smith, during her life time, my 
negro woman, Lenora and her child 
Moses, together with her future increase, 



and at her death give and bequeath them 
to my sister, Nancy Smith, to her and her 
heirs forever. 

Sixth, My will and desire that my 
mother and Aunt Lucy Price (she was 
Lucy Burton) and my sister, Nancy 
Smith shall have the use of the plants 
tion whereon they now live which is 
owned by myself and brother, Jacob 
Smith, also two small pieces of land I 
bought of Thomas Buller and Jones 
Tyler, so long as they live or marry, and 
at the death or marriage of all of them, I 
give and bequeath the same land to my 
brother Jacob Smith and brother-in-law 
Lyddal Bacon Bowles to them and their 
heirs forever. 

Seventh, My will and desire is that the 
remaining part of my estate is to be di- 
vided in the following manner. One fifth 
part between all the children of my sister 
Mary Smith King, which she has or may 
have as well as those by her first husband, 
John Bacon Ryall, deceased, as those by 
her present husband, George King. 

One fifth part between all the children 
of my sister Lucy Smith Hawkins 
(dead). One fifth part between all the 
children of my brother Jacob Smith 
which he has or may have. 

One fifth part between all the children 
of my sister Elizabeth Smith Bowles, 
which she has or may have ; the remain- 
ing one-fifth to my sister Nancy Smith. 

Eighth, My will and desire is, if either 
of the children of my sister Mary King, 
or those left by my sister Lucy Hawkins, 
should claim any part of the land which 
their mother heired as one of the heirs of 
my father, Obadiah Smith, deceased, 
which I have purchased, that they shall 
not have any part of my estate before 
devised. 

I give and bequeath to my brother, 
Jacob Smith, all the interest I have in the 
wagons, mules, which we have held in 
conjunction and release him from all ac- 
counts, whether by note or open account, 
upon his paying to my mother, Elizabeth

Sumner Family 

f Contributed to Genealogy.] 

It would appear that "W. W.," the 
writer of the note and query on the 
Sumner family in the January issue, was 
either misquoted or misinformed. Gov- 
ernor Increase Sumner, not having been 
born until 1746 could not well be the son 
of George (2) who died in 1715. As a 
matter of fact he was the grandson of 
George and son of Edward (3). As to 
the question whether William was the 
only son of Roger of Bicester, there is 
no other son mentioned in the will of 
Roger, who devotes considerable space 
to William and his upbringing and except 



for his wife he makes no provision for 
any other relatives except the children of 
his brother William. I do not think 
there has been any evidence produced to 
connect Thomas Sumner of Rowley in 
1643 with this family but there were 
families of the name in County Essex 
and County Devon who from the sim- 
ilarity of names would seem to have 
been connected as has been pointed out 
by Mr. Henry Fitz Waters in his "Glean- 
ings in England." Is it with intention 
that the correspondent alters the name 
of the second husband of Joane Frank- 
lin from Marcus, as he is usually known, 
to Morris? H. W. B.

Scotch-Irish Records 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

In tracing my Scotch-Irish ancestry, 
prior to the coming to America, I made 
a discovery that should be brought to 
the notice of Historical Societies. Penn- 
sylvania was the early home of many 
of those arriving from the North of 
Ireland. I find that those who can trace 
their genealogies beyond this country 
are singularly few. It was by much aj> 
plication that I was able to find the slight- 
est clue to my foreign ancestry. Having 
found it I am unwilling that a discovery 
made should remain unpublished. 

In Larne, County Antrim, Ireland, lives 
a Rev. J. Kennedy, who has charge of a 
church there dating back to about 1700, 
and probably much farther. In the pos- 



session of this Rev. Kennedy are two old 
registers of marriages, baptisms, etc., 
which concern the immigrants to Amer- 
ica who came so numerously from 1730 
to 1750. My understanding is that these 
registers are in bad order and have never 
had any publication. That the informa- 
tion they contain should be preserved, 
seems of that importance, that I think it 
a duty to direct the attention of a his- 
torical society, which has an interest in 
such matters, to the fact. This is espe- 
cially true of Pennsylvania. The heart 
of the immigration of Scotch-Irish to 
Pennsylvania and Virginia lies in the 
vicinity of Larne. 

Perhaps steps to obtain copies of these 
registers may result from this informa- 
tion. O. K. L.

PAST AND PRESENT 

The earliest applications of the prin- 
ciples of genealogy were made by the 
law, so it is to that science that we are 
indebted for the meaning of most of the 
terms now in use. The law defines an 
ancestor as one from whom an heir in- 
herits property or as one prior to an- 
other in the right to inherit property. 

* * * 

Such an ancestor may or may not be of 
the same line of descent. A son inherit- 
ing property is by law the heir of his 
ancestor and by descent the descendant 
of his ancestor. But if the position be 
reversed and the father inherit money 
from his son he is the heir of his ances- 
tor according to the law, and by descent 
he is the ancestor of his descendant and 
the latter is an ancestor of his own an- 
cestor. 

* * * 

In the days when property rights were 
vested solely in men, and when women 
had little share in the distribution of 
wealth, the law recognized only the male 



issue, and, therefore, interested itself 
only in the tracing of the male line of 
descent. 

* * * 

But the evolution of public opinion 
has modified this condition so that the 
rights of property now, especially in the 
United States, are practically the same 
for men and women. Therefore, mod- 
ern genealogy recognizes the importance 
of the female line of descent, and it has 
been scientifically established that the 
hereditary influence of the female an- 
cestors upon posterity is fully equal to 
that of the male. 

* * * 

An English sculptor was ordered to 
engrave on a tombstone the following 
words: "She was a crown to her hus- 
band." The stone, being small, he en- 
graved upon it : "She was 5s to her hus- 
band." * * * 

Up to the time of the Revolution all 
the early settlers of Augusta Co., Va., 
were of the Scotch-Irish race. After that 
period the German element drifted south- 
ward from Pennsylvania. 

Hs jK H« 

It is not in country graveyards only 
that the English of the epitaphs is open 
to criticism. In the Old Granary burying 
ground in Boston, there is a stone with 
the following inscription: 

Here lies interr'd the body of 

Capt. Nicholas Gardner, who was 

wounded by the enemy of which 

he died June 13, 1782, aged 33 years. 

* * * 

The first clergyman to preach in Ten- 
nessee was the Rev. Charles Cummings, 
who, in 1776, accompanied the troops of 
Colonel Christian against the Cherokees. 

* * * 

John McDowell, who was killed by In- 
dians near the forks of the James River, 
Va., in 1742, had two sons, Samuel and 
James, and a daughter Martha, who mar- 
ried Col. George Moffett. W. M. C.

PAST AND PRESENT 

Michael Baird, who lived near Little 
York, Penn., was a miser. His father 
left him a farm of five hundred acres in 
the vicinity of York, with some farming 
and household articles. Michael kept 
tavern a number of years, married, and 
raised four children. He accumulated 
an immense estate, which he reserved so 
tenaciously that he never afforded a dol- 
lar for the education of his children. He 
never was known to lay out one dollar 
in cash for any article he might be in 
need of. He would either do without it, 
or find some person who would barter 
with him for something which he could 
not conveniently sell for money. In this 
way he amassed an estate worth 
$400,000.

The man who wrote "Old Folks at 
Home," was buried in Allegheny, Penn., 
in the family burial-ground, Allegheny 
Cemetery, a lot in which also repose the 
remains of his father, mother, three 



brothers and two sisters. The grave of 
the composer (as well as each of the 
others) is marked by a handsome marble 
tombstone. On his are inscribed these 
words : — 

STEPHEN C. FOSTER, 

of Pittsburgh, 
Born July 4, 1826. 
Died in New York, 
January 13, 1864. 
The lot is a large one, well fenced by 
a handsome stone" curb, and is carefully 
tended and kept in order by the affec- 
tionate hands of surviving kindred.

One cannot know too much about him- 
self, and in acquiring a knowledge of his 
ancestors he is learning the most im- 
portant facts about his own personality. 
This has been demonstrated so many 
times that it is needless to enter into ex- 
tended argument to prove the assertion. 

An Irishman writing a sketch of his 
life, says he ran away from his father 
because he discovered he was only his 

uncle. 

* * * 

The earliest known Wilson in Pennsyl- 
vania was William Wilson and his wife, 
Barbara McKane, who were married in 
Dublin, Ireland. They came to America 
about 1720, and settled at the forks of 
the Brandywine, in Chester Co., Penn. 

* * * 

A generation is the interval of time 
that elapses between the birth of a father 
and the birth of his son, and was general- 
ly used in computing considerable periods 
of time, both in sacred and profane his- 
tory. The interval of a generation is 
consequently of uncertain length, depends 
on the standard of human life, and 
whether the generations are reckoned by 
eldest, middle or youngest sons. Thirty- 
three years have usually been allowed as 
the mean length of a generation, or three 
generations for every hundred years. In

compiling pedigrees, great attention is 
necessary to the number of generations 
in any given period, as they form a guide 
to the probability of persons having 

sprung from any particular individual. 

* * * 

Among our industrious and frugal 
forefathers, it was a maxim that a young 
woman should never be married until she 
had spun herself a set of body, bed, or 
table linen. From this custom all un- 
married women were termed spinsters, 
an appellation they still retain in all law 
proceedings. 



The first Floyds in America were two 
brothers, who came from Wales to Ac- 
comac Co., Va. William Floyd, a son 
of one of these brothers, married Abiliah 
Davis of Amherst Co., who was of In- 
dian descent. 

* * * 

A farmer walked into the office of the 
Probate Court and asked "are you the 
judge of Reprobates?" "I am the judge 
of Probate." "Well, that's it, I expect, 
you see my father died detested, and he 
left several little infidels, and I want to 
be their executioner!" W. M. C. 



Gwatkin Family of Virginia 

r Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Colonel Charles Gwatkin, of Bedford 
County, Virginia, was a native of Scot- 
land, and emigrated to America. Dur- 
ing his lifetime he filled several im- 
portant civil offices in Bedford County 
as well as several military positions in 
the County. Hie married Miss Mary 
Callaway, daughter of Mr. Richard Call- 
away of said County, on or about the 6th 
of November, 1767. 

The said Richard Callaway — son of 
Colonel William Callaway — born about 
1719, made several visits to Kentucky 
and finally removed and settled there 
with Daniel Boone in 1775. He had been 
a prominent man in Bedford County, a 
Justice of the Peace and an Officer in the 
Colonial Army from the County in 1758. 
After settling in Kentucky his two 
daughters, Elizabeth and Frances, with 
Jemima Boone, were captured by the 
Indians July 14, 1776, and were re-taken 
the next day by Boone. This incident 
was made use of by Cooper in his novel, 
the "Last of the Mohicans." Richard 
Callaway helped to organize the govern- 
ment of Transylvania at Boonesborough ; 
he was subsequently killed by the Indians 
near Boonesborough, March 8, 1780. 

Colonel Charles Gwatkin died in 1806, 
leaving, surviving him, his wife and chil- 
dren as follows:

The Youngs Family 

[Contributed to Genealogy] 

Elizabeth Youngs, daughter of Samuel 
and Rebecca (Brown) Youngs, born at 
Stamford, Conn., April 19, 1749, and 
died at Darien, Conn, March 6, 1833. 
She was a descendant of the Rev. Samuel 
Youngs who settled in Long Island in 
1620, and married another party of the 
same name (Youngs). It appears that 
the early church records, covering this 
marriage, were destroyed by fire, and 
while there has never been any questiop 
regarding the marriage, members of the 
Youngs' family are unable to place her 

husband. She married this Youngs 

about 1767 and had issue Phebe Youngs, 
born about 1768. Want the full name 
of the Youngs she married, date of mar- 
riage and full date of the birth of the 
issue the said Phebe Youngs. C. A. B.

PAST AND PRESENT 

Francis Gallons recommends the es- 
tablishment of a new genealogy, in the 
collection of statistics of large and thriv- 
ing families, in order to show respect to 
the parents of noteworthy children which 
such contribution of valuable assets to 
the national wealth richly deserves. This 
is a phase of genealogy which is begin- 
ning to command much attention, and 
the pedigree which can show a large 
descent of reputable middle class citi- 
zens is beginning to be valued quite as 
much as the one going back by a single 
line to titled nobility or royalty. 
* * * 

In most of the prominent modern so- 
cieties based upon genealogical descent, 
the female line has equal standing with 
the male, despite the fact that it does 
not perpetuate the family name. 

A New Jersey man says he knew 
Shakespeare when he lived in Pennsyl- 
vania, that his name was not Shakespeare 



but William Spear, and that after he 
moved to Michigan he caught the fever 
and ague, and was afterward nicknamed 
Shake-spear. 

* * * 

Somewhere in his "History" in Volume 
5, I think, Bancroft says : "We will find 
the first voice publicly raised in America 
to dissolve all connection with Great 
Britain came, not from the Puritans of 
New England, or the Dutch of New 
York, or the planters of Virginia, but 

from the Scotch-Irish Presbyterians." 

* * * 

Upon the tomb of one Isaac Green- 
tree, in Harrow, England, church-yard, 
is inscribed the following : 

There is a time when these green trees 
shall fall, 

And Isaac Greentree rise above them 

all. 

* * * 

The following is a copy of an epitaph 
in the church-yard at North Shields, 
England, which has been the subject of 
much laughter to many persons on ac- 
count of its absurdity: 

In memory of James Bell, of North 
Shields, who died 16th January, 1763, 
aged 42 years. Margaret, widow of the 
above said James Bell, died December 
30, aged 49 years. She was wife after 

to Wm. Fenwick, of North Shields. 

* * * 

An old genealogist said the other day : 
"I have spent hours of toil looking for 
Dorothy Dudley's family name. I never 
shall find it, but I believe it will be found, 
and, in all probability, by some youngster 
who will stumble accidentally upon the 
very thing we old folks have been look- 
ing for for more than half a century." 

* * * 

In the records of the St. Paul Church 
in Philadelphia is the following unique 
and rather unsatisfactory marriage en- 
try: October 21, 1792. "A poor, old 
man, and Mrs. Anderson (both pretty 
old, but no impediment)." W. M. C.

16, 1897, aged 76 years. Elizabeth 
Wood, his wife, born January 18, 1820, 
died April 22, 1903. 

It is a scientific fact that the parent 
has only one-fourth average influence 
upon his child, and the grandparent only 
one-sixteenth. The man whose ancestor 
was a signer of the Declaration of Inde- 
pence inherits only 1 -256th of his pa- 
triotism. A Mayflower descendant has 
only 1-63 5 36th part of Plymouth Rock 
blood. 

The ancestral influences for evil are 
as great as those for good, and must be 
taken into account in the administration 
of perfect justice. It is claimed that 
when genealogical records are complete 
and give the weaknesses as well as the 
virtues of ancestors the moral as well as

Ancestor worship is practiced in China 
to-day after the same methods which 
have prevailed for centuries. In every 
house an altar is erected sacred to the 
memory of the founders of the family, 
upon which incense is burned and be- 
fore which prayers are offered. The an- 
niversary of the death of an ancestor is 
kept as a sacred memorial day. The 
other altars in the house may be neg- 
lected, but never this one.

PAST AND PRESENT 

A rich old maid died at Newton, New 
Hampshire, who left property to the 
value of nearly $40,000. She was all her 
lifetime getting ready to be married, and 
had stored up 182 sheets-, 63 coverlets, 
50 blankets, 27 beds, with 1120 pounds 
of feathers, 54 pillows, 43 handkerchiefs, 
while the whole amount of her wearing 

apparel did not exceed $10 in value. 

* * * 

Near Staunton, Va., in July, 1763, the 
Indians killed John Trimble and Alex- 
ander Crawford and his wife, according 
to the record in an old family Bible. 

Every modern genealogist endeavors if 
possible to give the vital statistics— that 
is, the dates of the birth, marriage, and 

death of each person mentioned. 

* * * 

An Irishman being asked which was 
the oldest, he or his brother, replied: 
"I am eldest, but if my brother lives three 
years longer we shall be both of an 
age." 



At Athens, Penn., Mr. James Bee 
married Miss Martha Ann Flower: 
Well has this little busy Bee 

Improved life's shining hour, 
He gathers honey all the day 

From one sweet chosen flower ; 
And from his hive, if heaven please, 
He'll raise a little swarm of Bees. 

* * * 

An Irishman bought a family Bible, 
and taking it home, made his first entry 
in it thus : 

"Patrick O'Donoghue — born Septem- 
ber 20, 1869, aged twenty-three years." 

* * * 

It is estimated that this year there will 
be at least four times as many family 
records published as ten years ago. Each 
volume published not only gives the pedi- 
gree of the family interested directly, 
but also supplies many connecting threads- 
helpful in the weaving of other family 

records. 

* * * 

The Japanese have methods of ances- 
tor worship similar to those in use in 
China. They visit the graves of their 
ancestors regularly, decorating them with 

flowers and making devout prayers. 

* * * 

While genealogy should not encourage 
snobbery, and will not with any broad- 
minded persons, genealogists admit that 
there is a decided disposition on the part 
of most Americans to trace their ances- 
try back to aristocracy, despite their 
much vaunted democracy. 

Many of the early settlers who were 
registered on the early colonial records 
as weavers, blacksmiths, tailors, and 
similar trades in reality were of much 
higher descent than some of those who 
simply wrote the word "gentleman" after 
their names. The old artisans' guilds 
of Europe and England were of any- 
thing but plebeian origin and had the 
closest relations with the highest orders 
of chivalry. W. M. C.

PAST AND PRESENT 

The question is frequently asked, 
"What entitles an American family to 
the use of arms?" The answer is that 
heraldry is international ; so that an 
American who can prove that his family 
bore arms in a European country can 
secure the permission to use that design 
quite as readily as a Frenchman, or the 
native of any country where there is an 
established heraldry could secure the 
privilege of using the arms belonging to 
another nation — that is, if his descent 
warrants it and he is willing to pay the 
fee. Most of the European countries 
are satisfied with the heraldry of their 
own nation, however, and there are now 
more applications for the revival of Eng- 
lish coats-of-arms received from Ameri- 
cans than from all the rest of the 

world put together. 

* * * 

In the inventory of the estate of 
George Hays, who died in Virginia in 
1747, his entire property consisted of 12 
pewter spoons, valued at 25 cents. 



Do you recall the nursery rhyme of 
"Mother Goose"? Then proceed to 
read: Elizabeth Foster 

Known in the Literature of the Nursery 

as "Mother Goose," 

Was born in Charlestown, Mass., 1665 ; 

Married Isaac Goose, of Boston, 1693 ; 

Became a member of Old South Church, 

1698; 

Was left a widow in 1716. 

The first edition of her "Melodies" was 

Published in 1719. 

She died 1757, 

2E 92 years. 

* * * 

Charleston is often spoken of as the 
most aristocratic city in this country; 
and one reason is that the government of 
the city always has been largely in the 
hands of the old aristocratic families who 

founded the town. 

* * * 

About the year 1750, there was a house 
of worship near Norristown, Penn., 
called "Providence," and from this local- 
ity many families emigrated to Virginia, 
and built a meeting house which they 
called "New Providence." This was lo- 
cated in what is now Rockbridge Co., 

Va. jjs sj; ^t 

In some cases records may have two 
dates, which seemingly contradict each 
other. Whenever this occurs, both dates 
should be given. The student should 
keep in mind the fact that in early colo- 
nial times the year began on the 25th of 

March, instead of the 1st of January. 

* * * 

The distinguished General Logan of 
Kentucky was a son of David, and was 
baptized May 3, 1743, by Rev. John 

Craig of Augusta Co., Va. 

* * * 

At a wedding the other day, one of the 
guests, who sometimes was a little ab- 
sentminded, observed, gravely: "I have 
often remarked that there have been 
more women than men married this 



year.

PAST AND PRESENT 

Biography and genealogy contain the 
key to the intimate history of a whole 

people. 

* * * 

Bishop Meade, of Virginia, occasion- 
ally allowed himself to say a witty thing, 
though habitually very grave. He was 
once lamenting the neglect of education 
in the State, and remarked, with a signi- 
ficant expression : "Our girls are poorly 
educated, but our boys will never find 

it out." 

* * * 

A birth is found recorded in an old 
family Bible at West Haven, Conn., as 
follows: "Elizabeth Jones, born on the 
20th of November, 1786, according to 
the best of her recollection." 

* * * 

Virginia having joined the Prohibition 
column can now look back to 1738, with 
much regret, for in that year "it was or- 
dered that ordinary keepers sell their 
brandy at the rate of six shillings per 
gallon." 



The valley of the Shenandoah was first 
explored by John Marlin, a peddler, and 
John Sailing, a weaver, who started 
forth from Winchester, Va., in 1738. 

* * * 

Errors in dates are easy to make and 
difficult to correct. An applicant for 
membership to the D. A. R. had her 
application refused recently because in 
giving the date of the birth of her an- 
cestor she made him forty-nine years old 
at the beginning of the Revolutionary 
war, while the records of his case found 
in the United States Pension Office at 
Washington made him only nineteen, 
so that the would-be D. A. R. had evi- 
dently been a descendant of some other 
man of the same name, born thirty years 

before the soldier. 

* * * 

One Peter Scholl was living in Ken- 
tucky in 1776, and was intimately asso- 
ciated with Daniel Boone. He has been 
spoken of as Boone's nephew-in-law.

PAST AND PRESENT 

The oldest and most exclusive organ- 
ization in the United States which is 
based upon ancestry is the Society of the 
Cincinnati, founded in May, 1783, just 
before the disbandment of the Revolu- 
tionary army. 

* * * 

The first regiment raised in New York 
City for the Revolutionary war was 
composed of Hebrews. Consequently the 
descendants of these soldiers were 
among the earliest members of the newly 
developed patriotic societies based upon 
descent. Aside from this, the Jews have 
a genealogy of their own. Many ortho- 
dox members of the faith claim to trace 
their pedigrees all the way back to Abra- 
ham, but these records are disputed — 
especially by the members of the Re- 
formed Jewish organizations. It is 
doubtful if positive proofs of any partic- 
ular families go back beyond the de- 
struction of the temple of Herod I. 

An act of the Virginia Assembly, 
passed in 1705, in accordance with the 



old English law, prescribed the ducking- 
stool as the punishment for women con- 
victed as "Common Scolds." 
* * * 
At a christening, while a minister was 
making the certificate, he forgot the date, 
and happened to say: 
"Let me see, this is the 30th." 
"The thirtieth!" exclaimed the indig- 
nant mother; "indeed, it is only the 
eleventh!" W. M. C. 



Fertig Family Notes 

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 

Peter Fertig, of Chester county, Pa., 
born 1765, died in 1842, aged 75. He

Adam Fertig, who lived in New Han- 
over, Pa., 1760-1790, was probably a son 
of Michael. His wife's name was Eliza- 
beth . They had a child baptized in 

the Lutheran Church at New Hanover, 
Pa., as follows: 

(1) Anna Barbara, b. Aug. 6, 1770, 
bapt. Oct. 7, 1770.

beth Fertig in New Hanover, who had a

Oct. 20, 1766, but thTs may be the same

[Contributed to Genealogy.] 



The Will of Martin Burton 
In the name of God, amen: I, Martin 
Burton, of the parish and county of Hen- 
rico, state of Virginia, being weak of 
body, but of sound sense and memory, 
do make and ordain this to be my last 
will and testament in manner and form 
following, to wit: 

Imprimus, I give and bequeath unto 
my son, William Burton, the land and 
plantation I purchased of William Smith, 
containing two hundred and fifty acres, 
be the same more or less, beginning at 
a Birch in horse swamp in Carters' line 
near the old plumb tree, thence running 
a straight line to a Sycamore tree in the 
branch near Hicks Spring, thence up the 
branch and line to the corner of the 
old field to William Jones' line, this be- 
ing the dividing line between him and 
the plantation whereon I now live, to him 
and his heirs forever. I also give and 
bequeath to my son, William, six ne- 
groes, viz.: Susan, Agg, Isaac, Bobb, 
Jacob and Pegg, to him and his heirs 
forever. 

Item : I give and bequeath to my son, 
John Burton, the tract of land whereon 
he now lives, it being part of the land I 
purchased of Miller and part of the land 
I purchased of Hughes, and bounded as 
follows : Beginning in Smith line, thence 
down Poplar branch, to where it empties 
into Meridith's branch, thence across 
Meridith's branch to Miller's Spring 
branch, thence up the Spring branch to 



three maples near the Spring, thence a 
straight line to a small Pine in Du Valk 
line near the corner, this being the di- 
viding line between him and my son, 
Daniel Burton, containing four hundred 
and fifty acres, be the same more or less. 
I also give unto my said son, John Bur- 
ton, six negroes, viz. : Sam, Judith, Sail, 
Jack, Aaron and Cate, to him and his 
heirs forever. 

Item: I give and bequeath unto my 
son, Daniel Burton, the remainder of 
the before mentioned tract of land I 
purchased of Hughes and Miller to him 
and his heirs forever. I also give unto 
my said son, Daniel Burton, six negroes, 
viz. : Amy, Jenny, Davy, Cate, George

Item : I give and bequeath unto my 
son, Thomas Burton, the tract of land

Smith (probably the S. is for Sterling) 
and known by the Meadow Plantation, 
to him and his heirs forever. I also give 
and bequeath unto my aforesaid son the 
plantation whereon I now live, reserving 
to my beloved wife the free use of the 
same during her widowhood and also my 
daughter, Lucy Burton, the privilege of 
living in the dwelling house during her 
single life. I also give and bequeath

Item: I give and bequeath unto my 
daughter, Elizabeth Smith, six negroes, 
viz. : Lucy, Dorcus, Phill, Harry, Ned 
and Tilla, and their increase. I also give 
unto my daughter, Elizabeth Smith, one 
negro, by the name of Charles, reserving 
unto my beloved wife the use of the 
aforesaid negro, Charles, during her na- 
tural life to her and her heirs forever. 

Item: I give and bequeath unto my 
daughter Lucy Burton, seven negroes, 
viz : Jesse, Anicka, Roger, Rachel, Clair,

loved wife the use of the aforesaid ne- 
gro, Luck, during her natural life. Also, 
I give and bequeath unto my aforesaid 
daughter, Lucy, one horse and saddle, 
one bed and furniture and ten pounds, to 
be raised out of my estate as hereafter 
directed, to her and her heirs forever. 

I lend unto my beloved wife six ne- 
groes, viz. : Ben, Dick, Luck, Charles, 
Beck and little Daniel, during her na- 
tural life, and at her death to dispose 
of the aforesaid negro girl, Beck, in 
any manner she may think proper to 
some of my children, or their heirs. I 
also lend unto my beloved wife one- 
third part of my personal estate during 
her natural life and at her death to be, 
with the aforesaid negroes, lent to my 
said wife not before divided, equally 
among my children or their heirs. 

My will further is that the privilege 
of my ten lots of land in James river 
be equally divided among all my chil- 
dren, or their heirs. My will and desire 
further is that all the rest of my estate 
not before divided be sold, and after 
paying all my just debts and legisees 
herein mentioned, the money from such 
sale be equally divided among all my 
children, their heirs. 

And, lastly, my will is that my es- 
tate shall not be appraised nor my execu- 
tors give security for their executorship, 



and I appoint my sons, William Burton, 
John Burton, Daniel Burton and Thomas 
Burton, executors of this, my last will 
and testament, hereby revoking all other 
wills by me heretofore made, in witness 
whereof I have hereunto set my hand 
and affixed my seal this first day of Jan- 
uary, 1791.

The John Brainerd Family 

[Contributed to Genealogy] 

John Brainerd, who succeeded his 
brother David, as missionary among the 
Indians of New Jersey, was born at 
Haddam, Conn., February 28, 1720. He 
was fitted for college probably by his 
brother Nehemiah. This brother was 
pastor of the Eastbury (Conn.) Church 
from April, 1740, until his death, No- 
vember 9, 1742. John was graduated 
at Yale in 1746. 

He went to Bethel, near Cranberry, 
in April, 1747, and began assisting 
David among the Indians. David took 
a journey to New England during the 
summer, hoping to recover his health, 
but died October 9th, at Northampton. 
John w r as commissioned in his brother's 
place by the Society for the Promotion 
of Christian Knowledge. He was or- 
dained in February, 1748. The Indian 
children were provided with a school and 
were taught spinning, business and some 
of the trades. 

The Indians, having been dispossessed 
of their land, Brainerd, in May, 1755, 
was released by the society. He re- 
turned to New England, but soon was 
invited to preach at Newark. He ac- 
cepted, and moved there with his family, 
remaining about one year. 

Brainerd, in June, 1756, at the request 
of the society, again began work among 
the Indians, removing to New Bruns- 
wick. He was again released in Sep- 
tember, 1757, and the same month again 
was called to Newark and settled there. 
In March, 1759, at the request of the so- 
ciety, to which was added the appeal of 
Governor Francis Bernard, he once 
more considered going to the Indians, 



finally leaving his comfortable charge at 
Newark, in May, 1759. 

He labored among the Indians at 
Brotherton, Burlington County, and also 
did pioneer work among the white 
settlements. He dwelt for a time at Mt. 
Holly, where his meeting-house was 
burned by the British. He was called, 
in 1777, to Deerfield, Cumberland 
County, where he preached until his 
death, March 18, 1781. 

Brainerd's first wife, Experience 
Lyon, died September 17, 1757, leaving 
three little children. His second wife, 
Experience Price, died August 28, 1793 ; 
she had no children. Two of Brainerd's 
children, Sophie and David, died at 
Newark, during September, 1758. The 
surviving daughter married Major John 
Ross, of Revolutionary fame. 

Brainerd is buried beneath the floor 
of the Deerfield church.

service as a private in the continental 
army. He was born in Ireland and died 
in Washington Co., Penn. He was at 
the battles of Brandy wine and German- 
town. 

Benjamin Logan, b. 1743, in Augusta 
Co., Va., d. 1802, in Shelby Co., Ky., 
commanded many expeditions against 
the Indians in the Northwest. 

William Logan, b. 1756, in Pennsyl- 
vania, enlisted in 1776, in Capt. Peter 
Grubb's Co., Col. Samuel Miles' Rifle 
Regiment. In 1781, he received depre- 
cation pay for his services. 

Hugh Logan, b. Augusta Co., Va., 
1745, d. Lincoln Co., Ky., 1816, was a 
soldier in 1779, in Gen. Geo. Roger
